This YouTube video features several of my colleagues from the New Haven and Hartford Symphonies as they participate in a “flash mob” at the train station in New Haven on Friday afternoon, April 29th at 6:10. The purpose was to advertise the upcoming performance of Bach’s Mass in B Minor in late April by the Yale Schola Cantorum, presented by the Yale Institute of Sacred Music.
Pay close attention to the bottom line of the train schedule board — I’m sure it’s never mentioned Yale’s Sacred Music program before!
The violinist featured so prominently, with the human music stand, is Yaira Matayakubova, a member of the Hartford Symphony.
I personally love having the timpani up in the balcony — such a surprise!
